For thousands of years, medicinal plants have thrived in various natural areas. Nevertheless, people do not know all the secrets that nature provides. It is not enough to know the plant and its general characteristics, but we also need to know when is the right time to harvest the plants.

Its stem is quadrangular in shape, grows erect and is surrounded by coarse hair. Leaves on long stalks are driven in pairs and transverse to the stem. They are spherical in shape and are edged with sawtooths and coarse, fragile hair. When they get in contact with humans, the plant hairs are trapped in the skin and a burning sensation is released. The plant grows to a height of about 1.5 meters and is quite resistant to cold and various diseases. They are a nutrient for caterpillars and butterflies. The best time to harvest the plant is in the spring, when it has not bloomed yet. It can also be harvested in midsummer and fall with the use of protective gloves.
